Union Station, Washington, D.C., circa 1905 (Photo)

This is the Grand Lobby, sometime between 1905 and 1910.

I love this photo — it’s one of the coolest I’ve laid hands on via Wikimedia Commons.

I seem to have forgotten how to insert photos into a WordPress post so that viewers can “click to enlarge.”  If any of you guys can advise me on that, I’d be grateful.
